Jonathan Rhys Meyers
has sparked fresh fears he has returned to his hard-boozing ways after he reportedly drunkenly confronted French police as he prepared to fly out of the country.
actor, who has struggled with maintaining sobriety since a 2005 stint in rehab
, was allegedly handcuffed by cops at Paris' Charles DeGaulle airport after he challenged them to a brawl.
According to Britain's The Sun
newspaper, the star threw wads of euros at the officials and bragged of his wealth, before shouting, "You wanna hit me? Hit me!" He was released from police custody after several hours pending further investigations.
The shambolic scene mirrors the star's run-in with police at Dublin airport in 2007, when he was arrested and charged with being drunk and disorderly. The charges were later dropped.
